Canadian Rock icon Kim Mitchell is coming back to thrill his Halifax fans for one night only at Casino Nova Scotia.
Kim Mitchell has achieved gold and multiplatinum sales status over a long and storied career, starting early on as leader of the musically influential and eclectic Max Webster (5 albums), a band who in the late 70s defined “alternative” and “independent” long before the words became clichés. Mitchell left max to pursue a long and very successful solo career that continues to this day.
He has won three Jun Awards and a SOCAN 100,000 Radio Plays Award for his certified hit, “Patio Lanterns”. He is a gifted and peer-respected guitar player as well as an acclaimed songwriter’ having penned (in partnership with Pye Dubois) and recorded numerous classic hits including “Go for Soda”, “Rock N Roll Duty”, “Patio Lanterns”, “I am a Wild Party”, “Easy to Tame” and “All We Are”; all songs that have become a part of the Canadian musical genome.
Mitchell has the respect of peers, fans, and industry types alike. Just what does he consider his greatest achievement? “Shoot, that’s easy,” says Mitchell, “it’s in the couple of hours the band is onstage, being able to take people to a special place through our performance and music. When that happens, I’ve accomplished what I set out to do.”
Legions of Canadian fans agree!
